Donna Latter's Chocolate Butter Cake
This recipe will be used for the Donna Latter Memorial Prize in this year's The Land Cookery Competition.
1 3⁄4 cups self raising flour
1 1⁄4 cups caster sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda 2 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons cocoa
Place all ingredients into a bowl & beat well until the chocolate mixture changes colour & all the ingredients are combined. A processor can be used if desired.
Grease & line a 20cm tin (round or square).
Pour the mixture into the tin. Bang the tine slightly to even out the mixture.
Cook in a moderate oven for about 1 hour (this will depend on your oven) until cake is cooked.
TIP: If when touched in the centre, the cake comes away from the sides of the tin it is ready.
When cool, ice on top with chocolate icing.
